Below is information about the upcoming conference ‘Australia’s Strategic Futures‘. The event is co-sponsored by FIAPI (Flinders International Asia Pacific Institute) and DSTO (Defence Science and Technology Organisation).

Australia’s Strategic Futures

What are the key drivers that will shape Australia’s strategic environment in the first half of the twenty-first century? How will these drivers impact on the framework within which Australia’s future military capabilities and force structures are developed? This conference brings together a range of experts from academia, government, and the private sector to analyse these key questions. Inspired by the scenario building and futures analysis of the US National Intelligence Council and the UK’s Development, Concepts and Doctrine Centre, the conference will discuss a range of global and regional issues and themes that will influence Australia’s strategic environment over the next two three decades and how important these might shape Australia’s capability development.

Date: 1-2 October 2008,
Time: 8.45am – 5.00pm
